Bomb Disposal Experts At Walsall Mosque
Police and Bomb Disposal experts are at a mosque after a suspicious item was found.
Police were called to the Rutter Street address at around 10.45pm last night (Saturday 22 June) following the discovery in the grounds of the building. The item was then brought inside the building by a member of the public.
Officers were immediately dispatched and cordoned off an area around the building.
Police officers and other emergency services are in attendance.
Army bomb disposal experts are currently at the scene and have this morning ordered the evacuation of around 39 homes in the immediate vicinity of the mosque.
The measure is precautionary and temporary while a further examination of the item is undertaken.
People in the affected area and who are unable to make alternative arrangements are being taken to Walsall Town Hall where they will be cared for.
Officers are continuing to work hard to establish what the item is and how it got there.
Local officers remain at the scene and are talking to local people to keep them up-to-date and to offer reassurance.
